Vacationing in Myrtle Beach

Last week, we vacationed in Myrtle Beach.  It was absolutely beautiful every single day.

These are some of the you can see, beautiful weather.  Of course, I found the local quilt shop and made some purchases.  

I purchased some fun color rick rack, a few colorful fat quarters, 2 black and white fat quarters for my collection, 5 yards of a colorful orange fabric, and a red wide width fabric.  I purchased the orange fabric for our fabric swap (at the firehouse); I bought enough for swapping and also for the back of the quilt I will make after the swap.  The red wide fabric is for the red circle quilt that I am sewing at the firehouse.  This is what I have done so far...

Unfortunately, I will not be sewing for a while.  I will be spending as much time as I can with my girls; they will both be off to college before the end of August.


  1. enjoy your girls...the sewing machine is a patient, it will be there later.
    I like the color palette of your quilt and your vacation pictures make me wish for another week at the beach-I love being at the ocean.

  2. Love your quilt! But time with your "grown" children just flies, so savor every minute! See you in September! Florence

  3. *sob* I want to go back to the favorite place in the world! I wish my pics had turned out half as well as yours.
    I LOVE that quilt...very similar to the one I'm doing! Enjoy your time with your girls, time flies so quickly and you need to enjoy every moment!

  4. You have such a great eye for color and design. Love this quilt.


  5. I had the blues when my kids went off to school and the nest was empty!! Enjoy your time with them!

    Love your R&W quilt!


  6. Love your circle quilt. Enjoy your daughters while they are still home. My son will be starting college too but is attending a junior college in a near by city, so will be staying at home. According to him he is not going any where any time soon. And that's okay with me.

  7. I love your circle quilt! I remember taking my youngest to college (several years ago now). I totally shocked myself when I ended up crying almost all of the way home. I'm normally not a crier. Enjoy your girls!
